For Friday Sept 9

Posted 9/6/2016 12:40pm by Emily Best.

It seems as though our heirloom tomatoes have peaked, but we still have plenty available! We’ve also been told by many of our red field tomato growers that this is the week to get ‘em, as they predict they’ll start seeing their numbers drop soon. It seems to be great timing as it certainly feels like summer tomato weather again this week. Emily will be out of the office on Friday giving a presentation to agricultural trainers, so I’ll be sending out the list again. Just a heads up if something doesn’t look quite right!  

HIGHLIGHTS:  

BI-COLOR SWEET CORN: It seems to have been a tough year for organic corn, so we are definitely excited to see some of this on our list. Please note: we have been told that there is some worm damage and many of the tips are not filled out, so we are again not suggesting our corn for retailers. It is still deliciously sweet, so restaurants, chefs, and buying clubs fear not!  

BELL PEPPERS: We are being offered impressive quantities of green, red, purple, yellow and mixed bell peppers. These growers are having a bumper crop year!  

SQUASH:  Winter squash already?? Yep, that’s right! We’ve got it. But don’t forget about those raven zucchini, because we still have lots available!      

NON-ORGANIC, ALL NATURAL LOCAL CHICKEN EGGS: AVAILABLE IN MEDIUM, LARGE AND EXTRA-LARGE, 15 DOZEN BULK.   PLEASE CALL TIM DERSTINE AT HARES VALLEY GROWERS AT 814 448 2784 FOR GREAT EGG PRICES.
